Nora: Daughter of Asgard by AzaryaS Nora: Daughter of Asgard by AzaryaS
Fanart featuring [ N O R A V A L K Y R I E ] from RWBY
One of my dear watchers suggested I should draw Nora so here it is! This is was so fun to do, especially that Thor costume that makes her look even more awesome and badass haha. I came up with this idea when I thought of Magnhild and how Nora's character seemed to be inspired by Thor. I wanna do a male character from RWBY next ! ( lol that sounds wrong ) any suggestions?

In a bastardization of the Eminem quote. Why be a queen when you can be a goddess.

Seems like noone´s said it yet. Well, here I go:

Nora is inspired by Thor, actually. In fact, all of team JNPR were inspired by characters who cross-dressed in their history:
Jaune Arc - Joan of Arc
Nora Valkyrie - Thor
Pyrrha Nikos - Achilles
Lie Ren - Mulan

Ah, ok.

Well, did you know that Qrow is most likely the Grim Reaper? It´s not official or anything, I just recently noticed that crows are usually associated with death (at least in some corners of the world), Qrow´s semblance is bad luck AND he weilds a scythe.

may be possible, but Qrow is such a great character~ might be too much to say this but I love everything about him, including his bad habits. In fact, he is my favorite character after Yang. Actually I think I will do an O.C... yeah, that would be a good idea.  An O.C to ship her with Qrow xD thnks for the idea! Yang Shocked

You´re welcome. :)

However, if you want an OC to ship her with Qrow, you need to take into consideration that Qrow won´t go nito a relationship with anyone, as his semblance would put them in constant danger. So, to make it work, you´d have to find some way to work around his semblance. I already have four ideas for this, but since one is already in use, I´ll leave it out here:
1. Your OCs semblance brings her luck, therefore negating Qrow´s semblance.
2. Your OCs semblance allows her to turn off other people´s semblances. However, this could easily turn out to be the sort of relationship where Qrow starts to depend on your OC, which is something you might want to avoid.
3. Your OCs semblance allows her to see into the future (just short glimpses of two minutes in the future, for example), but she can´t control it. This would mean that Qrow´s semblance still works, but your OCs semblance protects her from the bad luck by warning her about it.

Also, I´ll say it right here, nr.1 seems a bit too much as if your OC was specifically designed to be dating Qrow, while nr.2 and nr.3 could all too easily make your OC a Mary Sue.
I say "could" because of the negatives such semblances (Good Luck and Visions) would have on the human (or faunus) psyche. If your OC always has good luck, then maybe she could actually want to have bad luck for once, and when your OC always has visions of the future, she could want to be surprised by something for once.

Then there´s option nr.4, which would be my OC Eis Star. Her semblance, when activated, protects her from the first thing that affects her (example: Nora hits her with a shot of Magnhild after Eis activated her semblance. Every subsequent hit from the weapon´s gun mode would have no effect on her). This even goes so far as to make her immune to other people´s semblances if she is affected by it once (so, technically she could beat up Yang as much as she wanted, and Yang couldn´t use her semblance to build up strength after the first hit).

Also, option nr.5: Your OC is just so madly in love with Qrow that she doesn´t give a damn if she gets burnt, electrecuted, frozen or even all at once, as long as she can be with Qrow.

I thought about number 1 and 3, on my way home today and yes. Number 1 would seem way too obvious that she would be designed only to be with him. As for number 3, it could work, but given that I want my OC to be a bit older, I figured she would have trained her semblance to the point it would increase her reflexes immensely, and that would help her. So I am considering this one but with a much shorter period foreseen, maybe 3 or 4 seconds into the future, so she wouldn't be OP.

I also thought that she could just have quick reflexes(from hard training over the years) and would easily dodge a potential threat or a dog poo on the alley lol but her semblance would be something simpler like healing others, or calming the mind . I even thought of something inspired from Doves , that would bring peace or serenity to others. But I am not sure about this one. I want her to be powerful, fast and strong, but easy-going and optimistic outside battle.
I haven't thought about nr. 2, it's a great idea, but again, I don't want her to be too op or for Qrow to depend on her, as you said, although it could help him a lot. I'll definitely take it into consideration. I'll take my time to shape her better. I don't even have an overall design in my mind for her yet hehe.
And finally, option nr.5 .... Oh yeah :D
thank you for the tips, I appreciate it alot !

You´re welcome. :)

And option nr.5 is a small reference to a Skyrim animation video where the Dovahkiin tells a Whiterun Guard what he has to put up with after the guard tells him that he took an arrow in the knee.

not really, but Thor is way older than her... maybe if she would be a few years older and would dump Ren XD
